I just tried to download BattCursor, but neither installer works on 64-bit Windows. The installer you're using uses a 16-bit *****trapper which is incompatible with Windows 7 x64 (lacks 16-bit support). I assume the program will work fine since it's a .NET application. It would be nice if the installer could be updated to work on a 64-bit system.

Hello :)

The BattCursor Installer does not use a 16 Bit *****trapper. It's a self written .Net Application, too.
I verified the files on the server and the installer works fine on my system (Windows 7 x64)

Please try to download BattCursor without using a Download Manager / -Accelerator or with another Browser.
You may also try to extract the zip archive using Windows Explorer (I have noticed IZArc sometimes corrupts files during extract)

Hope you can figure out what is causing the problem

Same problem here with BattCursor 1.2 on a Lenovo T61 notebook running 64-Bit Windows 7.

I did not use a download manager.

The error says:

There was an error while copy the data to the selected folder.
Try again?
Detailed information:
Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Temp\BattCursor 1.2\BattCursor Install.exe'.

Hello,

Except you two, I have never heard about problems with the installer.
But anyway, BattCursor doesn't need to be installed. Simply create a directory in your program files directory, for example C:\Program Files\BattCursor. Then download the beta version from this thread: http://forum.devs-on.net...posts&m=812#post812
and extract the files into that directory. After that execute BattCursor.exe

This version should work more stable on Windows 7 also.

That worked.

Question: How can I remove the big green battery icon from my desktop?

This program is informative. However the reason that I loaded it was because I was hoping that it would enable me to control the amount to which the battery is charged, like I could do with Windows XP.

You see, lithium ion batteries last longer if they are not kept at a 100% charge. I want to disable charging at 85% and enable it at 70% or thereabouts. Please consider adding this feature.

Thank you.

In the configuration go ti "Sidebar overlay" and set its visibility to never.

It is impossible for almost each application to control when the battery gets charged or not. If your laptop is possible to let a software control the charging (only very few models do) you always need a software from the laptop manufacturer. 3rd party software can't control it. It's too hardware specific.
